    I hear crickets chirping from Schmukster on that call out! I’ve got Gary down for a yes.

    Less than 3 months to go. Everyone ready?!

    @Crusha will be nice enough to bring his set of radios along, so I believe we have comms taken care of. That said, should we have an agreed upon backup? CB? GMRS?

    I've been following this thread in the 200 section, which details their trip and also has some good video of the tougher sections of the trail near the end. 200s on Hole in the Rock Trail HITR

    What about renting a satellite phone since we'll be in the boonies? The cost for the duration of the trip is ~$150.

    There are a couple of recent threads on Mud regarding shipping trucks out west.

    Can you please take the lead on renting the sat phone for the group? We can all chip in a few bucks.

    I think having one just in case is a no-brainer.

    CLCC also has 6 loaner radios. The CLCC radios and @Crusha ’s radios are programmed with the same frequencies.

    Let me know if you need any radio chargers with cigarette lighter plugs.

    Satellite phone is a good idea.
